Did you know you can create cheap, over-scaled art work created through Black and White Engineer Printing from OfficeDepot, OfficeMax or Staples? If you haven’t heard of this idea, well it might just change the way you think about large scale artwork, or even changing your artwork for the season!
Engineer, Architecture or Oversize Printing allows you take a photo or printable, and create large black and white copies on inexpensive paper. Engineering printing will not create color copies and you need to make sure your original work isn’t too small of scale. There are several sizes to choose from……..think BIG!! A 24×36 print is generally under $5.00! The process is easy, just upload your artwork at any of the major office supply stores, follow the prompts on the order screens, and you should get a confirmation within minutes and most times your print will be ready in under an hour! Talk about instant gratification!
